What is recessed lighting?

Recessed lights, also known as “can lights”, are a type of light fixture that are mounted directly into the existing ceiling. The majority of the lights are housed above the ceiling drywall, so all you see is the trim and the bulb, giving the appearance of a light “recessed” into the ceiling. Most recessed lights have circular diameters available in 4–12” sizes.

Recessed lighting is very popular in modern homes because it is subtle, yet provides a lot of light. It can be used to create general lighting, ambient lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting, depending on the type and placement of the fixtures. Unlike traditional overhead fixtures, recessed lighting fixtures are not as visible and emit light from a more centralized source.

Recessed Lighting Benefits

Recessed lighting can be installed for many applications. Whether you’re looking to illuminate an entire room, highlight artwork, create a cozy atmosphere, or even provide task lighting for specific activities, recessed lights might be the perfect solution.

In addition to their aesthetic value, installing recessed LED lights can also help you save on energy costs. LED recessed lighting is more efficient and can last up to three times longer than traditional light bulbs, so you won’t have to worry about replacing them as often. You love your LED recessed lighting cost savings!

Using a recessed light trim and dimmer switch, you can easily adjust the light levels to create a dramatic effect that will showcase certain room features. If you want to add a more subtle effect, you can use a gimbal trim to direct the light without creating harsh shadows. No matter what your style, the recessed lighting service from Chesapeake Electric can help you set up a unique and beautiful look in your home.

What Our Happy Customers Are Saying


We called this company to come give us an estimate on placing lights in four bedrooms, a front room, two bathroom Receptacles and a plug for our dryer. Logan came in accessed all the work needed gave us three quotes. We had a lot of wiring needed. The lights look amazing and we love our ceiling fan in our room. We picked what we wanted and he got started right away. Then the next two days Logan and Ben worked hard upgrading our home. We are so pleased with their work, price and how personable they both were. All three days they were on time and worked hard each day keeping us updated. We highly recommend this company and these two technicians.

I wish all companies were this professional. From the moment I called until the work was finished I couldn't have been happier. Ethan Payne was the gentleman that completed the work at my house. He was very professional, respectful of my property, and showed me everything he was doing to do before starting and once the work was completed. He made sure I was 100% satisfied. If I need any more electrical work in the future I wouldn't hesitate to call and will definitely be asking for Ethan!

EDIT: I still think the services are a bit pricey, but in looking back on my old review and in light of recent service, I need to say that the stuff I asked for on two separate occasions was done as quickly as possible and professionally, and went super quick from scheduling to being finished with the appointment. I’m very pleased with all that was done to fix up our kitchen and bring things up to code. That warrants bumping my 4 to a 5, but I’ll leave my original thoughts below after my first service appointment which might’ve been a bit premature considering how much I appreciate the quick and solid work for the time and money spent. A bit expensive but they came out at my convenience, laid out potential packages, listened to my concerns about the work, and completed installing my new 50-amp line fully across the house within the day. If you want it done right now it’s hard to beat Chesapeake’s timing and service.

Mike was great! Very friendly and personable. He came and diagnosed a complex electrical issue we were having with multiple rooms and outlets without power. He gave us a complimentary safety inspection and made some great recommendations to help ensure our home was up to code. He found some other wiring issues while making our repairs and ensured he cut out and replaced the damaged wiring. We will be reaching out again for future services to update our smoke detectors and install recessed lighting.

Was extremely happy that Chesapeake Electric was able to help in an emergency. I called other companies and was told I had to wait 1-2 weeks. Zachary from Chesapeake Electric responded and was on my doorstep one hour later. Very professional and knowledgeable. I am happy that my home is safe.
